Version 0.6.7 is out

New official release of OpenPandora version 0.6.7 is out.

The last addition to the release notes was fixing of 120DPI bug. The fix doesn't solve all the problems with high DPI (e.g. notification window), but I can assure that the work continues. The fix was actually more of a hack to avoid some problematic behavior with .NET Forms (one can even say a bug).

This version took more than two months, but it has the longest list of release notes. I hope that next releases will take less time.

Heading to version 0.7 I can tell about some of the planned changes and additions:
- Plugin API
- Compliance with Pandora license
- Full support of high DPI
- Complete rewrite of MiniPlayer and introduction of MicroPlayer
- Many other enhancements and bug fixes

The project is now licensed under GNU General Public License 2.0 and hosted by Google Code, so you can track development with Issues List.

If you want to help in development or just curios, grab the source.

Open your music and enjoy it.

UPDATE: Fixed downloading previous version from new version available message
UPDATE 2: Fixed bug with the new notificatin window on non Windows XP computers. Version updated to 0.6.7.6 .
UPDATE 3: Added setting to show notification window as classic balloon. Allow user to disable new version message box. Title will continue to show new version message on startup. New download, same version.

Thank you for your hard work on this! Install worked fine for me (installed on top of the latest beta).

As always, OpenPandora just keeps getting better.

I like the notification windows, but what would be great is MSN-notifcation like functionality where a right-click on any part of it will dismiss it immediately.

May be a close button [x]. All space except for the links used for dragging.

Excellent! One of my friends just linked me here and its great. One suggestion is for the mini-player. Maybe make the volume bar smaller so there is room for thumbs up and thumbs down buttons. I know you can right click to get to it, just seems more user friendly to have the buttons right there by play/pause/skip. Keep up the good work!

Awesome as always. -- Say, the pop-up window steals the focus of the cursor, which is annoying. Has it always done that? Not sure if there's a way around that...

This happens for few users. I'm working to solve this.

I seem to have issues with shutting down windows XP. If its running and I try to shut down nothing will happen until I close OpenPandora and then shutdown.

Thanks for fixing the dpi bug! Looks great now!

I seem to have issues with shutting down windows XP as well. If its running and I try to shut down nothing will happen until I close OpenPandora and then shutdown. Is this going to be fixed?

Mark said...

Thanks for the awesome app. I too suffer from having to manually close OpenPandora before Windows will complete the shutdown process. Just adding my vote for getting that one fixed. Thanks!
